Thank you, Screamie, so so much!! Ya know I love ya, and appreciate your kind words and well wishes always, girl.

Over 400 people showed up for Dustin's memorial service. He was so popular and so very loved. People parked and walked from blocks away to come to the bonfire. He would have really loved it!

I miss Dustin so much, but I hurt seeing my brother in so much pain more. I can't even imagine losing my own child like that.

And I just want to say "thank you" to all of you who reached out to me and offered your condolences and words of comfort. Losing my nephew so suddenly like that really hurt me deep in my heart, and I really appreciate and recognize y'all for being good, kind, caring people to say something for me and let me know you care. Thank you so much.

This is for you, my precious brother Rick. No words can describe how you are feeling losing Dustin, but Mr. Eric Clapton understands how you feel. He wrote this song when he lost his son. May it bring you some comfort now, and maybe help you to release the pain and sadness you feel right now. I know the pain will never completely go away, but God will ease it for you and if you trust Him, He will teach you ways to make wonderful things come from Dustin's life and all the other lives he touched. Your big sister loves you more than anything, Rick. I'll be there to see you and the family soon. When the timing is right. Call me if you need anything at all. Love you, my baby brother! -- Halochild

Wow... That sucks.

Halo, hugs to you and yours. Sincerely hope that you all will continue to have the support needed to heal from this. It's hard to know what to even say. Words don't seem adequate. Everyone has to find their own ways, to cope with such shocks.

You are a strong person, Halo. By your own accounts, you couldn't have survived your own life if that simple fact was not true. So I will indeed keep you and yours in my thoughts with the best regards - but I will also trust in you to find your way through this. Let us know, if there's anything we can do to help.

.... And please forgive me for mentioning this... Please understand that my intent... Is to promote further discussion. I do not wish to offend anyone but... Our society as a whole, we tend not to speak much about death. And due to things which my own extended family have been dealing with this year... We have come to better realize and appreciate the importance of talking about death before actually it happens.

Halo - I am SO grateful that you and your family knew and so were therefore were able to honor your nephews wishes. Loss is challenging enough without having those kind of debates crop up. So I hope that anyone who has not already made their wishes clear to all their next of kin will consider having the talk as soon as possible.

And I hope as well that they seriously consider being an organ donor. Because if everyone who died was a donor there wouldn't be anyone anywhere waiting on a transplant list. One corpse can be used to save as many as nine separate lives.

Courage & Peace

Thank you, so much, Calmmountain, for the warm and kind words for me right now. It means more to me than you know. Especially, right now. Your message was so welcomed and wanted that I cried (the first time) when I read it. It's really hard for me to talk right now, so I'll just leave it at that, but if you guys only knew everything I've been thru in the last 3 weeks you would flip out and call me a liar. I'm not even joking. When I'm not quite so choked up, I'll try to explain some of it, but I just can't think right now. But it was important to me to at least thank you for your message and let you know how much I appreciate it, Calmmountain.

Wow, "this really hurts" is all I can say at the moment. And if I make it thru all of this, God is gonna have one tough lil warrior on His hands. I sincerely have my doubts right now if I'm gonna survive it all. I'll talk more later when I can.

I know y'all had no way of knowing this, but my kitchen burned last weekend too. It caught fire while I was on the computer in the living room and I barely got the fire out. But I got burned pretty bad while I was in the kitchen trying to get the fire out, and I'm still coughing up black shit out of my lungs. The kitchen is the only room that burned, but the fire came into the ceiling of the living room and dining room too so it's all black in here everywhere. I'm waiting for the insurance adjuster to come out and assess the damage before I even start to try to clean up anything. I got burned mostly on my right hand, face, and neck, but I'm okay. It's just really depressing to be in here right now.

Here's a picture of the burn on my neck. It's the worst of them all. I guess that's what I get for being clumsy, huh?

Yeah, I know, I got blessed. Thank you, Reaptat. It really scared me. I didn't think I was gonna make it out. Here's a tip for anyone who doesn't know this already: Don't throw water on a grease fire cuz it will EXPLODE!, haha! It went up like a big huge mushroom cloud of fire. I thought I was a gonner fo sho! But after the big explosion, the fire went out miraculously, and I made it out the front door with only the three burns. The one here on my neck, one on the side of my face, and my right hand. I have a lot of smoke damage and the ceiling got burned in 3 rooms from the explosion tho. I'm going to the doc tomorrow too cuz I'm still coughing. But it coulda been a whole lot worse.

Oh man. If it's a grease fire, try to cover it or throw baking soda on it. The water will just throw the grease over the edge and into the fire.
